Lars Bondeson (1865-1908) was the stage name of Carl Jansson-Öhlin, who was one of the founders of Swedish bondkomik (rustic humor). Born in Örebro in 1865, he was a singer, storyteller, lyricist and music publisher. His songbooks were a major influence on countless entertainers in Sweden and America. His songs were recorded in the US by Gustav Fonandern, Joel Mossberg, Olle i Skratthult and Charles G. Widdén. In addition a few of Bondeson's own recordings were re-released by Edison Records.
